Tuesday, 23rd October 2012 14:22 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Epic Games has announced an agreement with Square Enix which grants the firm a group-wide license to develop multiple games using Unreal Engine 3 and Unreal Engine 4 technology.

Epic Games Japan, which is providing local support, worked directly with Square Enix on the new license.

“Epic has a strong relationship with Square Enix, and it’s an honor to provide their creative and technical talent with the best game technology available for licensing,” said Taka Kawasaki, territory manager of Epic Games Japan.

“We look forward to supporting their developers with world-class tools for years to come.”

Square’s Demons’ Score for iOS and Android, developed by iNiS and published by Square Enix, was created with Unreal Engine 3 and was released on Android and iOS last month.

Sqaure is the first developer announced to have signed a long-term licensing agreement for Unreal Engine 4.

    I think they’ll use the Luminous Engine for in-house Square Enix games (like Final Fantasy etc.) and the Unreal Engine for other games.

    Luminous is going to be for Final Fantasy.

    That engine is not built for multiple genre like Unreal, Frostbyte 2, Fox engine. THe Galcier engine is made specifically for Hitman.
